Juvederm is a dermal filler that provides a non-invasive way to attain a more youthful appearance. It is a non-surgical wrinkle treatment that, when injected into the skin, restores the skin’s volume and hydration. Juvederm is used to smooth away wrinkles and nasolabial folds, otherwise known as smile lines.
A specially formulated gel, composed of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, Juvederm was developed by Allergan, the manufacturer for Botox, and approved for cosmetic use by the FDA in 2006. The smooth consistency of Juvederm allows it to be easily and accurately administered by your MedSpa specialist. Each treatment requires approximately 15 minutes, depending on the number of injections required. Results with Juvederm are immediate.
Your rejuvenated appearance is temporary, and can be maintained for up to one year with results varying from person to person. Hyaluronic acid is a natural protein, allowing Juvederm to gradually be absorbed into the body. Additionally injections, or touch ups, may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results. The natural protein used, allows Juvederm to pose little risk of an allergic reaction and does not require an allergy test prior to treatment.
